Lysimachia nummularia
“Golden Pennywort”

Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' "Golden Pennywort"

Liquid gold for a dull shady corner! Not invasive like the common green type, “Golden Pennywort” forms a low super dense weed-suppressing mat to only 2” tall and 2’ wide, filling in bare spots and weaving itself between plants. This is one groundcover that really does what it’s supposed to do! Cool with dark foliage like Uncinia uncinata ‘Red’ and Heuchera x micrantha 'Melting Fire'. It’s a primo choice for cascading over the edge of a bed, barrel, hanging basket or trailing into a pond. EASY, fairly fast and low maintenance.
